I have enjoyed the Explorer - it has only failed me twice; once my fault and once the SUV. The radio runs too hot and you lose the lcds on the radio. Not expensive. Transmission needs to be service every 30000 miles. The ERG needs to be replaced too frequently. Rides great. I have only been stuck in snow once (about three feet of snow). Good pulling power. I will buy another one, but with 3rd seat for use sometimes, not daily.
Has good air, excellent radio system with the upgrade. Good lumbar support and back support in seats.
Problem with ERG and radio dash light failure. Air conditioning weak at idle.
